I have a set of Bullseye hubs, and they come with allen bolts/washers, but they don't take the typical allen size (hex?). Also, they don't take quick release skewers.

Anyone have any info on a good alternative bolt or mod to the bullseye to make it more user friendly for when having a mechanical out on the trail?

Thanks

An easy fix is to drill and tap a new hole for a metric grub screw on the opposite side of the collar.

You sould be able to swap the whole axle out fairly easily with something more QR friendly too.

depending on the size of bolt check

they do a lot of imperial bolts with metric hex heads. They're primarily BMX but they might having something in the right size. Oh and all the bolts are titanium.

thanks for the responses thus far :)

I lack the "Bullseye includes the needed 3/16" hex wrench to use their bolt", which is easy enough to find. My set are like the ones listed here:

I would rather run a Q/R on the front as the bolts are a bit fussy, and require an additional tool to be carried.

can someone tell me the size of the bolts on these hubs? They are not metric. I've got a pair of wheels with Bullseye hubs and want to replace the QRs with bolts.
